Libby Page’s work pushes landscape painting beyond simply what is seen; she captures felt experience and provokes us to look afresh.
My current focus is to explore the idea of wellness through painting in two different ways.
Firstly, colour has an effect on our thoughts and emotions. I’m exploring this in my work using different colours to evoke feelings of high energy or tranquility, of danger or peace.
A walk in Nature does wonders for our well being and this restorative quality that is the second element I incorporate into my paintings. By evoking memories of beautiful places I hope to lift the spirits of the viewer, and encourage people out into the landscape themselves.
The yellow brick road is entirely my own invention; I wanted to convey that sense of courage that comes from setting out on an adventure into the unknown, whatever it may bring.
Little Growing Baby Trees
Nothing can quite describe the loss of the 44,000 plane trees that are being felled all along the banks of the Canal du Midi, but there is a glimmer of hope as new trees, of different varieties are planted.
Here we see little poplar trees starting what will hopefully be a long and happy life near Roubia, Southern France.
